tamil comedian turned hero Santhanam, failed with his earlier release Sakka Podu Podu Raja, which was released directly clashing with siva karthikeyan starrer Velaikkaran, and that totally ruined his career fortunes. Though he was going great guns as the top comedian of tamil cinema and started off as a hero delivering commercially faring movies, this time his plans have gone haywire.
The movie was the official remake of telugu hit Gopichand - rakul preet singh starrer loukyam, and santhanam couldn't quite connect with the audience as even the celebrity preview show had less than 10 people attending it. However, one person is very happy about Sakka Podu Podu raja despite the failure of the comedy entertainer.
It's none other the film's lead actress vaibhavi Shandilya, who has debuted in tamil with this movie. It must be noted that she had earlier debuted in telugu with horror flick next Nuvve. The actress has officially replaced rakul preet singh in a new project under producer CV Kumar banner. The actress was roped in after lots of chaos. The movie will be helmed by a leading director and it is a female-centric project.
